We work with the Patrick County High School Administration, Band Directors, and Color Guard Instructor for the improvement of the band programs.
The “Pride of Patrick County” Band Boosters Association is a registered Non-Profit Charitable Organization (IRS § 501(c)(3)). The Band Boosters sponsors events and activities not only to raise funds for the Patrick County High School Band Programs and Color Guard but also to assist with the growth opportunities of the students and to further the common good and general welfare of the people of the community.
We look forward to another exceptional year with " The Pride Of Patrick County” band program this year. We urge you to become a Pride of Patrick County Band Booster and to assist with this excellent program. Joining is free and you are welcomed at any time during the season. We do this for our kids!
What We Do: We provide support to the marching band and color guard units, including moving equipment on and off the field; assisting with travel, uniforms, and repairs; fundraising; offering enthusiastic support; and otherwise doing what we can to enhance the students' band and guard experience.
Annual Activities Include: Band camp, rehearsals, concerts, hosting the annual “Celebration of Pride” marching festival, attendance at various marching competitions and parades. The band and color guard provides musical support and spirit for the Patrick County High School football games and for a variety of school events such as pep rallies, and graduation. The band provides a support group and haven for those who love music. Several students have chosen to continue their love for music on to the next level as they enter into college. The band boosters supports the education of our students each year by offering two scholarships to Seniors whom apply from the band and the color guard.
